Zombie Day parade!
It’s been a year since we’ve seen humans.
Now we commemorate this day
Because our troubles are all gone…

So we are now pretending
Our happy ending
Was not our own demise.
So sing with bodies fading,
With flesh decaying
Oh, I can see the flies!

Tried going vegetarian,
But the grains were not fulfilling.
Turns out that we don’t like a food
Unless the food requires killing.

[Chorus]
See balloons in the air,
Moldy flesh and hair
Chunks falling while
We’re celebrating!
Cheers, we’re civilized now,
But it’s our final bow
Because we’re rotting away!

Zombie Day parade!
The marching band is decomposing!
A putrid smell is in the air…
Oh wait, that’s just the churro stand.

Turns out we’re not good hunters
And it’s a wonder
How long our bodies seem to last.
We’re not so coordinated,
Our tools: outdated.
Those animals are fast.

I wish we had the humans back,
They were a lovely source of protein.
Their pudgy bodies, oh so slow,
They were just so ripe for the poaching!

[Chorus]
Watch the floats passing by
Through dead grey-ish eyes,
Glazed over while
We’re celebrating!
Cheers, we’re civilized now,
But it’s our final bow
Because we’re rotting away!

[Chorus]
Hey! It’s the zombie mayor,
With bones looking bare,
Speech-making while
We’re celebrating!
Cheers, we’re civilized now,
But it’s our final bow
Because we’re rotting away!

Hey, stop biting my arm,
Now sound the alarm,
Some of us are cannibals
Because we’re starving!
Cheers, we’re kinda civilized now,
But it’s our final bow
Because we’re rotting away,
Because we’re starving away,
Hungry while we all decay!
